The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Recommended Posts

Yeah it's pretty gutting, I keep getting little magical trinkets from side-quests, exploration and stuff and Geralt keeps saying

If Triss was still around I could take it to her...

rubs it in everytime! Oh well, I got a kiss, I suppose! :lol:

46 hours played now, Level 19.

Finished off the side-quests I had left in Novigrad, did a Witcher contract to take out a Royal Vyvern (piece of piss) then I went round exploring the ???s, found this hilarious side-quest involving mouldy cheese :lol: will go round and discover the rest of the ???s in Velen, finish off any side-quests I can do and then finally move onto Skellige I think.

Finally downloading the 1.03 patch for Xbox One, it'll either make no difference to me at all as so far (touch wood) I've had very little problems or it'll break the game....

I'm 51 hours in now, Level 20 and just finished reading all the noticeboards around Skellige, not sure if there's much point in doing the quests that are greyed out now (no XP I don't think) but I did a couple of them anyway just because they're so damn good.

Skellige itself, I'm not sure what to make of, the scenery is absolutely jaw-dropping at times, but can't help thinking it's a tad more generic design-wise than Velen. Velen felt like this uniquely Witcher world, one of death, depravity and desperation, gripped in war and woe but Skellige just feels a bit like, well, Skyrim really...nothing wrong with that, Skyrim's a fantastic game, but I can't help feel a teensy bit disappointed with it, it definitely has a sense of awe and wonder about it though, I'll give it that, and that song that plays, absolutely spine-tingling, just perfect for that world.

Yeah, just make sure you stay with the "Get Junior" quest and don't deviate until you've finished it and you'll be fine, this was the lesser of two evils for me anyway as I ultimately ended up failing the side-quest (as I was going to go back to do it after) as a result. Went to see the guy you have to talk to in "Gangs of Novigrad", and couldn't get an option to resolve the quest, just two options that did nothing (no idea if this side-quest bugged as well) so failed it ultimately, lesser of two evils though, much rather fail a side-quest than halt my progress in the main questline.

just got chance to go back to this, i had started get junior, then another quest soon after - so went back to the get junior one and completed it before the other one - worked out ok luckily.

Edit - trying to play this as nice as possible but so many people always end up dead! Why don't people just accept the witchers word as law and do what he says instead of always wanting to die?

Level 19 and 63 hours in now, its been a game of two halves today...

On one hand I've had some pretty hefty performance issues with the game in the last session, Novigrad was absolutely horrible, kept hanging and getting that blurry screen when it tries to load (even in conversation). Everywhere else was fine but as soon as I entered Novigrad it would kick in again... this lasted for around three to four hours off and on, then just vanished for the last hour so god knows what that was all about. Also I'm not sure if I'm being hit intermittently by the Exp bug, finished a few (green) quests today a didn't receive any experience from them although I seemed to get little bits during... so again, God knows. :unsure:

Other than that made some good progress on a few Witcher Hunts (got my second contract finished without using potions, oils and signs :D ), found all the diagrams for the Enhanced Cat gear, crafted the Swords and i'll craft the remaining armour once I hit level 20, rescued Dandelion and started following the main Skellige questline, so we'll see where that takes me.

Has anyone done Dandelion's quest after you rescue him, Christ, it's pretty dark....

I assume you're talking about

The Priscilla stuff with the serial killer?

some bits of it were pretty dark I agree, loved that quest-line.

I'm now 55 hours in, Level 22.
Done a load of Contracts, Side-Quests and a few Main-Quests on Skellige today, working through my back-log, started off doing the lowest I could (grey) although it's pretty pointless, and a couple of greens, after this I realised that the main quest I was pretty much ignoring was greyed out as well (no main quest xp!) so I thought, well I really should do a few of these to get it so I can earn XP on the main-quests at least, so did about 4 or 5 of these, absolutely brilliant missions again and got the infamous Unicorn sex-scene :lol: got the feeling I'm quite near the end with the main-questline, so I've no idea if I should just do all the side-quests and forget about getting XP from the main, or the other way round really, I know if I finish off the main-questline first then I probably won't go back to mop up my remaining side-quests.

Yeah, that's the one... took great pleasure in sorting that guy out.

Have you hooked up with Ciri and stuff now, then?.

Just found this image online, guessing it's the outcome if you give Keira some "wrong" advice...

I finished all the main-quests in Skellige yesterday and the next quest I have to do is 'Ugly Baby' back in Velen

been doing a load of the Skellige side-quests and contracts today though, quite a few today, a few greyed out, a few green (although I didn't seem to get much XP from them...) 58 hours in, Level 22. Will put a couple more hours in early tomorrow morning.

I've seen a few people online name that quest as the first of Act 2... Looks like you might have a fair while yet.

New Driver update from Nvidia been giving me major problems tonight.

Game has been absolutely fine for probably about 50 hours now, only had it black screen hard-crash a few times at Kaer Morhen at the very start of the game when I (probably) had the settings up too high, had it stall a bit in the menus since then but that was a known bug with the game and was easy to ALT + TAB out of, returned back to

Kaer Morhen

today in the story and it started crashing again, once was just after a cutscene and then another 3 times after that when I was out on missions...I looked in the graphics settings in the pause menu and I swear there are new options added in there that I didn't see before, fiddled around with them, set the post-processing stuff to the Medium preset and the Graphics stuff to the High preset went back to the game and carried on for about 20 minutes or so without any problems so hopefully that's resolved it...weird though, was running absolutely perfectly on the previous yesterday afternoon... :(

Now Level 23, 60 hours in, current quest is

"The Final Trial" at Kaer Morhen

looked it up and you're right, Nag, these are some of the first quests in Act 2 according to a quick skim-read of a walkthrough I just found on google :lol: so I'd imagine I've probably got at the very least another 10 hours of main quest-line to go, just hope the crashing doesn't return otherwise I may have to wait for a patch or the next Nvidia driver update or something...had a scare earlier where it said my save data was corrupted when I tried to load back in after booting up the PC again after a crash, luckily it was just the autosave checkpoint save that was corrupted and I could happily load a slightly later manual save.

Looks like you're steaming ahead of me now in the story, I'm still mucking about doing the contracts and secondary quests that I'm getting close to out leveling (already out leveled my next primary quest which is annoying).

Another 5 hours on here yesterday and today.

Just did entirely story-questline quests today to try to make a bit of headway, ended up getting quite a bit done and I think now I am actually pretty close to the end, may even finish it tomorrow if I exclusively do story-questline quests again, don't know whether to do that or go back and mop up the 10ish contracts and side-quests I've got left, guess I'll decide tomorrow, can always do them after the main questline is over, but I don't know whether I'll have the motivation to do so or not.

Won't give anything away but the story has gone a bit confusing now and is far less interesting than in the first half of the game, I'm still enjoying it though and will see it through to its conclusion, some great quests along the way.

Now Level 31, 65 hours total.

Yeah, the XP I was getting for the main story-quests yesterday were absolutely ridiculous, don't know if it's just because I'm playing on Easy that I get more than usual or what but I went from Level 23 to 31 in 5 hours :blink::blink::blink: the XP was ridiculous, kept popping up like '1000XP gained' after the main story-quests, pretty absurd really, level has absolutely sky-rocketed.

Played 3 hours today, just exclusively stuck to side-quests, Witcher Contracts and a Treasure Hunt that I had left on my quest-log, completed all the Witcher Contracts available and got the 'chievo :D and also became brawling Champion of Champions or something, pretty cool as well and you get some decent rewards for doing so, lots of cool side-quests mainly in Skellige, and a fantastic one in Novigrad that hearkened back to TW2's plot somewhat.

Finished everything I had left on my quest-log (apart from the Gwent quests as I'm incredibly shit at Gwent) and will continue on to the remaining few main story-quests tonight, may even finish it, crazy :blink:

Now Level 33, 68 hours played in total.

I don't think quest xp is effected by difficulty so it's nice to know I'll be able to jump some levels with the story, just a git that I can't put a hell of alot of hours in until probably Sunday.
